A father is a girl’s first superhero. He taught her how to ride a bicycle and drive a car. He would carry her to her bed when she would fall asleep on the couch. Before saying goodnight, he would tell her a bedtime story. He would always remind her that she is the most beautiful person in his life and make her feel special.
Girls, didn’t that all sound familiar to you? With him, you always feel so safe, as he has always been a rock solid support. And, now that you are getting married, it is your turn to do something to make him feel special. Here we have some ideas on how you can honour your father at your wedding.

Organising an Indian wedding is a really hectic job. Since he is your dad, he must be stressing the most. After all, it is his little darling's most important day. With all the fuss and flurry of activities, he surely must be acting indifferent to peace. So, book a meditation session to calm his nerves and yours too.
A father just wants his daughter to be happy, but it is always hard for him to see her go away. While you will move on to embark upon a new journey, your absence will always remind him that things would not be the same. Just sit with him and have a long session of emotional talk. Since, he has to look as well as act super-strong, it will be tough for him to cry in front of others. But, he would not need to hold back when he is only with you.
Everyone waits for the first dance of the couple. Before you dance with your groom, dance with your father. You do not necessarily have to choreograph it, just go with the flow. This will tell your father that he is and always will be your first love.
Instead of making a grand entrance, ask your father to walk you down the aisle. Hold his hand tight before he gives you away. This is a very special way to say that you want him with you in every step that you take. And this way, you will also tell him how grateful you are to him for his support as you move forward to start a new life.
Wouldn't a father-daughter photo shoot be a super-adorable thing to see? So, get clicked with him during all the pre-wedding as well as wedding ceremonies and collect the best ones. Apart from these photographs, also collect all your cherished childhood photos with your dad. Compile them all in a beautiful album and gift it to him before your vidaai. You can even create a slideshow of all of them and show them on a big screen on your wedding day to tell the world that you are still your daddy's little princess!
Take your father's shirt and add a piece of it in your own wedding dress. Highlight it a bit. He will be extremely happy and really honoured!
Ask your father to read something at your wedding or your reception. It can be your favourite fairytale that he used to read to you when you were a toddler, or a blessing, or anything else that you want. You can read something for him as well.
